Flight cancellations are the result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has reduced demand for air travel.

Flights to the three destinations only returned late last year when US travel ban has been lifted after almost two years.

However, in less than two months, all three routes will be suspended for the next week – with hundreds of journeys cancelled.

A BA spokesperson said: “Like other airlines, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we are operating a reduced and dynamic schedule.

“We apologize to customers whose travel plans have been disrupted. In the event that a customer’s flight is cancelled, we are always in contact with them to offer options including a full refund.

“Customers who are unable to travel or opt out can also continue to change their flights or claim vouchers for future use as part of our Book in Trust policy, already applied from the beginning of the pandemic.”

Thankfully, all three routes will be back by the end of the year.

Flights to New Orleans will return April 26, to Baltimore May 2 and to Nashville May 9, according to the airline website Simple flying.

BA had previously announced that it had cut more than 2,000 flights from its schedule until March.

And it’s not the only airline to have flights canceled in the coming weeks and months.

Virgin Atlantic has been forced to cancel all flights from London to Hong Kong due to continued travel restrictions.

All routes from Heathrow to the city have been suspended until February 7.

Ryanair scrapped a third of its flights in January because Omicron and travel restrictions across Europe.

The low-cost carrier has also canceled all flights to and from Morocco until February 1, amid a “lack of clarity” in the country about entry for Britons.
